What is mindfulness?
‘Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when we pay attention, on purpose with curiosity and acceptance’, - Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness meditation involves sitting silently and paying attention to thoughts, sounds, the sensations of breathing or parts of the body, bringing your attention back whenever the mind starts to wander.
